Personal:

I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

Lunch- just under an hour running with the guys. Then, as my hip was hurting a bit (new niggle) and it's a recovery week, I stopped early and did a bit of biking.

PM- missed my lunch run due to work, so went to the gym in time for the world cup game. Felt great during the run, starting at 7 min pace. At mile 5, I decided to do a 6:30 mile, then 6:00 mile. 8 miles total. Then drove home for the second half. It was a pretty good game, even if the US lost. It was 96 deg and very humid outside, so a treadmill run was nice, too. 8 miles, 55 min.

PM- Paris Mtn with Jason and Jim. It was 95 deg and very humid when we started, with a heat index well over 100. It was still over 90 when we finished. Ugh. Jim always pushes the pace on these runs, and so it was pretty quick. 11 miles and 1300 ft climb in 1:45. Jason even went swimming at North Lake. Tomorrow will be an easy day, then I have a 5k race on Friday. Easy run Sat, then fly Monday to Utah to drive to Colorado for Hardrock week next week. Should be fun.

Lunch- ran the trails behind GE with Jim and Jason. It was insanely hot and humid- I was really struggling on the way out. Fortunately, at the Sam's Club turnaround, the blackberry bushes were in full swing- we stopped for 6-7 minutes, stuffing our faces with ripe, delicious blackberries. I probably ate 40 or more. The run back was more enjoyable as the headwind cooled us. 45 minutes running, I'll call it 5.5 miles. Slow and easy rest day.

Ran RWB shoes 5k. Felt ok, finished in 16:40 or so. It's a pretty fast race. Winning time was 14:16, and I was 5th GE runner. Then helped the kids run a kids race, went swimming, took a nap, and went to a nice neighborhood BBQ and fireworks display.

AM- Slept in a bit till 6:30, then went for an easy hour jog. Nice temps, upper 60's. Started at 7:40's, finished at 7:10's. Now I'm packing for my trip on Monday. The rest week has me feeling pretty good, though I'm sure the high altitude and climbing of Hardrock are going to be rough on me. The current plan is to do 10 hours of running on Tuesday, 5 hrs on Wed, 2-3 hrs on Thur, hike Grant-Swamp pass for iRF at the start of the race, then pace Stuart Air for 20+ hrs on Fri/Sat. I'm figuring 125+ miles, 45,000 ft climbing, and 45+ hrs total running, all of which will be new records. All at high elevation.
